HOE Ministries, Inc. (Hope for Orphans of Ethiopia), www.hoeministries.org, is a non profit Christian organization founded in January 2007, committed to reaching out to the impoverished orphan children of Ethiopia.
WILTON, Conn. (Business Wire EON) November 20, 2008 -- The Ethiopian AIDS pandemic has afflicted this country of approximately 77 million people and has left countless numbers of homeless children living on the streets and in the many orphanages throughout the country. Ethiopia is now in a time of crisis: drought, crop failure, and the rising cost of food contribute to a countrywide famine. HOE Ministries mission is to provide the immediate basic necessities of food, clothing, medical care, and education and most importantly, the security of a warm and friendly family environment along with a hope for the future.
Tom Mustico, founder of HOE Ministries, said, "One of HOE Ministries commitments are to Hanna Orphans Home, a legally established non-profit organization focused solely on helping the poor, parentless and destitute children in Ethiopia. It is supported solely by individuals and organizations from Ethiopia and overseas. Since being founded in 1992 under supervision by Hanna Teshome, 22 "homes" have been established, caring for over 180 children on a full-time basis, providing housing, food & nutrition, healthcare and educational needs."
He continued, "In addition to supporting and building homes, we and our partners at the orphanage have managed to arrange the release of over 30 children from prison, aged from infancy to 15 years old, providing them with housing, food, medical care in Addis Ababa, Jimma and Harar, Ethiopia. These children are innocent victims of the prison system due to crimes that their parents committed.
